Dime a dozen (used), worth every penny.
By kkenmore63 on


2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Ext Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


More room than any truck/suv, with handling and mileage of a sedan.

What I like:
Stow n go, lots of storage, roomy comfortable, decent on gas (27mpg hwy, 18.5 combined).
Well thought out interior.
Chrysler seems to have addressed a lot of the previous gen's chronic mechanical issues (transmissions, sway bar bushings, etc), though it seems to have been at the expense of attention to detail.

What I don't like:
Cheap feel compared to my old '97, though better than the 2010 I used on loan.
The pass. side power door stopped working (broken wire, easy fix, see youtube).
The key fob stopped working.
The airbag light is on for some reason, and OMG the rust is an up hill battle.

Best Features

Stow n go, gas mileage, bullet proof powertrain.

Worst Features

Pay more attention to details, RUSTPROOFING.
